George, what was your specific position on the issue of the MAME/Arcade scores? Would it be a Debate-Off about what scores ought to count for the KOs, or would it be about something a little different?

I agree George about the Swear Off.  Denver would be a great place to host such an exciting event.  Jourdan can play Centipede, you can play Popeye, and I will stick to Donkey Kong since I swear on that game anyways.  Our panel of judges will obviously include Allen the king of creative swears providing a judgment on creativity, and a couple other judges rating our Swear Off based on volume and form.  It will be so big it will even take focus off the Wild Card Division.

I think George should play Jr.  That will bring out the best (swear words) in him.

Depends on what the debate is I'm game. :)

 My entire "debate" was why MAME for DK (and just DK here) is not worthy of being considered for this event and a score on a home cab. That's all lets do it :D

Dan


I haven't seen a response from kyou, saying whether or not he's willing to go up against me in the Debate-Off, but I am ready if he or anyone else is. Is ready to lose the mame/home score vs live arcade score argument, that is. 8)

Also Robbie, we may be able to have our first Swear-Off at the Kong-Off 3. Jourdan Adler himself may be our third contender for the coveted "SwearOff spittoon." (I just made that up) Seriously, Jourdan expressed interest. He may just curse at a centipede machine while we play games that we dislike. I figured it comes to the same thing. We'd just need to figure out who our panel of distinguished judges will be.

If that is the case I will take the Popeye machine as that will help reach my full swearing potential.

Mitch and Dan, I was thinking more of a debate on the general subject of mame and home scores vs live arcade scores. What scores should be accepted to earn an invitation to the kong off would naturally arise under this broader subject of debate. You guys and anyone else are welcome to take the opposing view to me. I have a feeling I will probably have more people on my team, but even if it is just me alone, I feel comfortable and confident that I can take you all on myself.  8)

There is also the question of a moderator. It must be someone both sides agree on, a neutral party. Lets not be quick to nominate anyone, but see how things go in the next few weeks. The right moderator/moderators may present themselves.

I nominate either Chris Psaros or Walter Day! ;D

Seriously.

EDIT: I trust either would be good, even if they did have their own strong opinions on the matter. But, I know I can't really force them to do something they don't wanna. At the very least, I'm complimenting their intellectual honesty and level-headedness.

I like Hank's suggestion. So I think the picture of the SwearOff is getting clearer. I think I will play stupid junior, Robbie plays Popeye and Jourdan will play centipede. Also we will all play DK. That way we each have a unique title to curse at, and also a second round where we all curse at the same game. Of course this is still the early stages, but I'm kind of liking how the format is starting to take shape.

And very good point, Allen Staal is a natural choice for head judge. He really couldn't compete, he's too good. So another 2-4 judges should do it I think.

Also there is a possibility of more contenders. I imagine Ross may be inspired to throw his asshat into the ring.

No way would I agree to Chris P as a moderator. And not because of his endless opinions on every little bit of minutiae under the sun as it pertains to DK which I often find tedious, ponderous and wrong, but clearly he is not fond of me. For some reason, I can't imagine why.

And I would disagree with Walter as a choice as well. He is above this. He is a high meditator, not a mediator or moderator. I wouldn't want to drag him into this debate-off. Even as an aloof and impartial judge, that's still many levels down from where he is. Plus I don't want anything getting in the way of our music making.

Lol, fair enough. It has to be someone everyone (or each 'side') can agree on. Maybe Joel West? Maybe Hank? Maybe just a random bartender!? :P

Popeye doesn't suit George well anyway.  I heard a rumor that he can get 300K on it.  Or was it 3M?  I can't remember how many zeroes there were.  Someone saw it on the wall of fame at Funspot.

Yeah, that was just a lucky game though, Hank. A very lucky game. I think it was because I helped carry the Popeye machine that Ben set the world record on up the stairs of his apartment in Brooklyn. I earned some Popeye spinach powers from that.

Excuse me?

You heard me, blog-boy!

I prefer debates done with MAME. Should I use WolfMAME 106 and attach the INP to this thread, or do I need to stream it and send a copy to the KO3?

Joel may be biased towards the live arcade side of the debate. Most of the guys from the 80s scene are. He may make an effort to take an impartial view on the subject, but I think I know where his heart lays. I think you would be giving me an unfair advantage. Although Joel knows I worship Satan, so that may color his judgement of me a tiny bit. I guess I'm saying Joel may have strong opinions that would get in the way of being a moderator.

I wouldn't want to put Hank in that position. As Ambassador of Donkey Kong, Hank needs to stay out of controversy. It wouldn't do for his true feelings to come out about this subject. All the mame players would cry.  :'(

And Mitch, Do you drink beer? I am pretty sure you don't. I think that may be why you don't know this, but I'll let you in on a little secret: there is no such thing as a random bartender. :)
